Tae Lovelace, a father from Covington, Georgia, helped the police capture a man that was caught exposing himself to children at an Atlanta-area park by holding him at gunpoint.


The man, who was later identified as Josten Meeler, was spotted running around in public completely naked and in broad daylight, near children that were playing at the park.

According to WTOL, Lovelace was at the park to feed the less fortunate as part of his church's, the Restoration Kingdom of God, initiative when he spotted the naked man.

Since it was a family event, there were plenty of people there and everyone was frightened when they saw Meeler approach the children without any clothes on.

It is still unknown why 21-year-old Miller was nude but, after spotting him near his two sons, Lovelace immediately jumped into action and followed him through the park.


When he finally caught him, Lovelace pulled out his handgun and pointed it at Meeler. All this can be seen in the footage captured by Lovelace's cellphone, which he used to record the incident in order to serve as evidence by the police.

Lovelace's grandmother dialed 911 and soon a couple of police officers arrived. They pointed their guns at Lovelace, telling him to lower his weapon, and, during this time, Meeler, took the chance to attempt an escape by jumping into a creek.


He didn't go far, as the police officers captured him fairly quickly. Meeler was then taken to a local hospital before being charged with child molestation, being under the influence and public indecency.

During an interview with the news station, Lovelace said that everyone makes mistakes, but that Meeler should receive help as soon as possible so he won't repeat the same actions in the future.
